About meI'm a computer professional with varied reading interests---history, fantasy, poetry, mysteries, baseball, etc. I'm married to an English professor whose interests include 19th century novels, romance novels, children's books, and quilting.

About my libraryThe library currently spans the entire house. We have books in almost every room. There are cookbooks in the kitchen, classic literature in the living room, old computer books, travel books, and children's literature in the guest bedroom. More children's books in my daughter's room. Still more children's books in my wife's office (notice a common thread here?), along with her academic books. Books I'm hoping to read soon are in the master bedroom, and everything else is in the den. (I also have a bunch of technical books in my office at work.)

Just about everything is cataloged. A few of my daughter's books may still be missing; it's hard to be sure I've got all of them when they keep migrating around the house...

I don't have ratings on any of our books. I can't think of a one-dimensional way to compare books that will work for me.

I'm currently using the Read but unowned collection for books that I want to review, but that I don't own, and for books I'm currently reading, but don't own (i.e., library books). It would be impossible to provide a comprehensive list of all the books I've read but don't own a copy of.

(The picture above is from Kerry Argent's Wombat and Bandicoot - Best of Friends. You'll find it in our library, along with several other books featuring wombats.)
